It has been a tumultuous 2017 NFL season for the Oakland Raiders yet, somehow, they find themselves in position to win the AFC West division. The Raiders took another step towards that goal on Sunday with a 24-17 win over the lowly New York Giants.

During the first half of the year, it looked as if Oakland was ready to crash and burn before all the lofty expectations they had set. However, they have managed to get back on track while the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers fell into a slump. Even head coach Jack Del Rio himself admitted how fortunate this team is to still have a chance at the playoffs during the team’s press conference.
